I just noted this in the topic of #fedora-admin.  Due to having
thousands of accounts in FAS we have to be careful that we don't flood
the pipes too much.  As a result our mail queue is VERY full at the
moment, and password reset e-mails are getting tacked onto the end.

You will get your password reset e-mail, I assure you (I see plenty of
them in the queue), if you get multiple, only the last reset e-mail will

We really apologize for this, but there is a fine art in getting e-mail
servers sending at the right pace, and we don't want Google etc to start
thinking we only exist to spam people.
